3D-Printed Machine Gun Folds and Shoots Endless Paper Airplanes

By Andrew Liszewski on at

It doesn't matter what side of the debate you're on when it comes to using 3D printers to make guns, how could anyone being against using the technology to build a machine gun that folds and fires an endless barrage of paper airplanes?

There are a few off-the-shelf parts in Dieter Michael Krone's wonderful creation, including the guts from a cheap cordless screwdriver to power it. But everything else was created with the help of a 3D printer, and certainly a brilliant grasp of engineering.

It's not something you could easily sneak into the back of a classroom, but if you can get this thing to the top of a skyscraper you can certainly have a bit of fun watching a barrage of paper planes drift down into a city. [Dieter Michael Krone via Tastefully Offensive]
